Read full description of the books:
Poems that span the twentieth century. Poems that celebrate life and beauty. Cuddly, happy, serious, silly poems, poems, poems; two hundred eleven in all. Color and water give lovely impressions, but don't cramp the feel of the words. What a delightful book this is.
With every reading the book gets better. I have struggled with enjoying poetry, but I keep feeling drawn to it. Perhaps if there had been someone in my life that loved poetry the journey may have been easier, but now I can say I love poetry, and this little volume had a lot to do with it. I have so enjoyed reading a few poems every night. Each one is like a little emotional treasure, a whole story in a few lines, a launching pad for my own feelings and thoughts.
Meilo So is a poet with a brush. Her illustrations are at turns beautiful and whimsical, touching and capricious. My favorite picture is on pages 36-37, I love the colors and the birds; other pages with favorite pictures are 86-87, a magic carpet ride; 66-67, I love fall colors; 18, the marsh; 44-45, a mountain vista.
